Tide! I mean, did you see those Patriots jerseys and Eagles pants? So white! That was the best four hour commercial for a laundry detergent I’ve ever seen!!
I watched the LIVE television broadcast over AIR with my HDTV bunny ears and my picture was crystal clear… so much better than streaming from my computer! Anyhow, it was actually pretty good and I did something I’ve never done before, which was watch the live twitter stream at the same time. Thousands of tweets later, all was said and done and another big game was history, but of course, the commercials are what really matters.
Here are my top 5 pics:
#1. Tide. For originality and making something people will remember.
#2. Amazon Echo. For the Lulz.
#3. Doritos Blaze/Mt. Dew Ice. For bringing the A game.
#4. Hyundai. For making me tear up AND supporting a cause. Props.
#5. Monster. For making a commercial that actually made me want to buy something.
Here are most of the game highlights in somewhat chronological order:
